[Players note: Due to several reasons I was not able to continue my news. To have no break in the storylines, I´ll post some stuff what happened in December.]

7th December 1920

Cape Town. Planning of the Transafrican Railway makes good progress. Together with a spokesman of the Nederlandse Kongo Spoorwegen the leading project engineer of the South African Railways introduced their latest plans to the gathered press. So while using what infrastructure already is at hand, the building of new tracks will begin in the region of Elisabethville (Lubumbashi) to connect the towns of Lusaka, Elisabethville and Likasi. Starting in Elisabethville, two tracks will be build simultaneously in both directions to install the first railway connection between south african and netherland territories.

Once finished the Transafrican Railway will consist of tracks from Cape Town through Port Elizabeth – Bloemfontein – Welkom – Vereeniging – Johannesburg – Pretoria – Bulawayo – Lusaka - Elisabethville (Lubumbashi) – Likasi - Luluabourg (Kananga) – Kikwit - Léopoldville (Kinshasa) – Brazzaville – Boaué - Yaounde to Douala with sidelines Léopoldville - Boma; Boaué - Libreville; East London - Port Elizabeth; Durban – Pietermaritzburg - Johannesburg; Maputo - Pretoria; Beira – Salisbury - Lusaka; Mocambique – Nampula – Blanty - Salisbury; Daressalam – Iringa – Mbeya - Likasi.

Maintirano. Ghost Ship of Juan de Nova not yet identified. Six days ago we wrote about a “Ghost Ship” seen in the Street of Mocambique. Three days later, the same ship was seen once more, again coming out of a fog bank and disappearing in another seconds later. Again observers who saw the incident from a ferry, swear that the vessel made no noice, left no wake and showed no other sign of life. And again the 3rd Cruiser Squadron in Durban had none of its cruisers nearby. So the question remains: What kind of vessel is this?
